Worky worky worky

I just had a conference call with the AM and the BOM for the account that I was originally hired to consult on.

It was a strategy meeting; I had to explain some (admittedly confusing) stuff to the AM; I was asked for my opinions on dealing with some obstacles; I was asked for suggestions for an action plan.

What makes it interesting is that my boss just got a promotion so he is the head of all the AMs. So, since I was representing him, technically, they were reporting to me. O_o

Dude, this whole sitting in as the Voice of Da Boss at various meetings is starting to be kinda fun. I can ask uncomfortable questions - hell, he *tells* me to ask the questions! And certain people who have ignored me inquiries in the past (because I'm just a lowly consultant I'm sure) actually have to give me an answer.

Whoa. I can totally see how people become smarmy, conniving, power hungry weasels when they are in corporate/exec assistant type rolls.

note to self: do not let power go to head
note to self II: do not act like a bitch. Or at least no more than usual.
note to self III: make list of all grievances, real or imagined that See notes one and two.
